GIGABYTE Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8GB GV-RX480G1GAMING-8GD Video Card

1 out of 5 eggs Constant System Crashes even with 16.10.2 10/28/2016

This review is from: GIGABYTE Radeon RX 480 G1 Gaming 8GB GV-RX480G1GAMING-8GD Video Card

Pros: well, it's cheap, like everything else AMD is affiliated with any more

Cons: Constantly crashes on any game made in the past 10 years. Absolutely no support from AMD, their drivers are absolute garbage. Thousands of people are continuing to have massive system crashes with terrible sound, screen goes blank, and everything becomes unresponsive to the point where all you can do is manually restart your rig.

I have tried manually setting the timing on the RAM, DDU uninstall/reinstall of all different versions of their garbage drivers - everything from 16.7.2 (the one that is *supposed* to work for RX 480) all the way to the latest 16.10.2, replaced the PSU and added additional cooling (all in an attempt to resolve these crashes that occur minutes after starting anything from Overwatch to BF1 to Spellforce 2 - yeah, that RPG from *literally* 10 years ago).

Other Thoughts: This is the recommended AMD GPU for BF1, I can hardly see why, *IT* *DOESN'T* *WORK* I am sending this one back to newegg. I have opened a ticket with AMD to pay for the shipping but that is about as hopeless as their garbage hardware.

Logitech K800 2.4GHz Wireless Slim Illuminated Keyboard - Black
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Great idea poorly executed 06/03/2014

This review is from: Logitech K800 2.4GHz Wireless Slim Illuminated Keyboard - Black

Pros: Long battery life, easy to connect, almost perfect except for one fatal flaw.

Cons: button design, fragile, poorly designed buttons

Other Thoughts: The keyboard was exactly what I was looking for, long battery life, wireless, this is for my media box in my living room, I do some light gaming on this machine as well. This is a wireless keyboard, right? So its going to get moved from the coffee table to my lap or from my lap to the floor. When you do this, the buttons fly off, once they have popped off once they never go back on. You can barely rub your hand over the top of the keys and they will simply fly off. The first time I purchased this keyboard was from Fry's, I took it home and two buttons fell off in the box! I brought it back, the guy said: "Oh yeah, this happens all the time, go through THE ONES ON THE FLOOR, and find one that has all of its buttons attached(!?!) I took it home and sure enough less than a month later buttons were flying off again. I have purchaswed one other from Newegg since and yep, less than 3 months of use and buttons like 1 - 5 and w through t and the f button and the enter button on the 10 key (which I think I've literally used once, maybe) are balanced in place and barely work because they won't pop back on once they've popped off. I threw it away. Never buying this again.

Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite

2 out of 5 eggs 60% DOA 12/08/2011

This review is from: Microsoft Natural Keyboard Elite

Pros: When all the buttons work this keyboard rules

Cons: Buttons do not always work

Other Thoughts: I have been using this keyboard since early 2000 and it has always been the easiest keyboard for me to use. faster less typos everything. Ordering them online has never been an issue, I've seen the inside of these, not a whole lot going on. I ordered one and it came with maybe 10 working buttons, there was no response at all from the rest. the RMA? Cost me $16 dollars for a 5 business day send. For a $28 keyboard that is no bueno. MS has failed the QA test (again)... I would suggest ordering these by the handful when they are on sale, test them all and then send all the bad ones back at once.
